NEW! KS III Scripts

Whilst continuing to add to my KSI and II collection (of over 400 scripts) I am now turning my hand to KS III script writing. This is a new venture for me and I am more than happy to receive requests/pointers/advice offered by any KS III teachers; likewise from drama groups.

My first submissions are by Charles Dickens – A Christmas Carol, Oliver Twist, David Copperfield, Great Expectations and A Tale of Two Cities.

I will be working through other great classics plus a number of themes such as Climate Change, Future of Our World, etc. Again, requests on specific themes and books most welcome.

Just received this from ‘an appreciative mum’! I normally get feedback from teachers so it was really nice to receive this! “Just watched my daughter in her class assembly this morning, about Chinese New Year. Fantastic assembly, so informative and such fun to watch too! My daughter loved performing in it and can’t wait until the next one!”

The Olympics 2020

There will be a section – THE OLYMPICS – dedicated to Olympic scripts nearer the time. These scripts are currently in the Sports categories of the website and although ‘up to date’ as in up to the last Olympics 2016, I have not yet been able to add any information for Tokyo e.g. countries taking part, new sports etc. I will add this info to the scripts when it becomes available. In the meantime, customers are welcome to buy what I have – and I will obviously send a free updated version when it is done.

The following was a review and my response off TES which I would like to share. I’m always heartened by such feedback – fellow teachers will, I know, understand the importance of such encouragement!

Natural Disasters Assembly or Class Play

wowthehokeycokey said: This is a great resource. The children performed it as a play to their parents at the end of the topic. It also reinforced their learning, as the subject knowledge is presented in the most interesting way possible. I also used it as part of our learning about play scripts within that topic. Highly recommended and saved me a weekend of work trying to write one. Good suggestions for linking songs too. A lucky find for me as I didn’t expect to find a play about this. Thank you

My reply:

Thank you so much for taking the time to write – your review pretty much sums up what I aim to do through my writing – which is to bring the curriculum to life in a meaningful way i.e. covering what you teach in class and presenting, via the children, as a kind of round-up of what they have learned. I also, as a teacher, found that it gave even the least confident children the chance to shine – often quite a revelation how children rise to the occasion through drama. Thank you again. Positive feedback like yours keeps me writing! Sue Russell
